Awesome. Superman smashing fuckin Raiden's face in? Okay!

I just hope we dont see DC Villains in the game, i want strictly superheroes and not just the mainstream guys (yeah Bats, Supe and Wonderbitch are okay, but I want some Green Lantern, Flash, Cap Marvel, Green Arrow etc)

But yeah....good shit!

I find it hard to get excited over the vortex of suck that is Mortal Kombat, but I'm not opposed to a DC fighting game...I'd just prefer it to be DC vs. Capcom. :P

They're only a decade late in countering Capcom! I hope a demo pops up for this, because as much as I'd like to try out the concept I'm not interested enough in buying and rentals cost way too much nowadays.

This is funny, because I just read a thread about it in the other forum I post as (www.shmups.com) and they think that is game will be the worst shit on the entire planet.

Like I said over there: I'm game if Captain Marvel is a character.

I could have sworn there already was a DC vs. Capcom. But then I lost track of those Vs. games a long time ago. :P

Anyway, Mortal Kombat has long since lost its luster for me, so this game  can, in the immortal words of Scott Sharkey, "suck my ass and blow a big brown bubble."

I kind of agree with D-Rider. Personally I've always enjoyed Mortal Kombat but it's always been kind of a sub-par game to me. Never quite up there with Tekken, Soul Calibur and games like, as mentioned, Marvel Vs. Capcom. Really, I don't understand why DC would want to risk throwing their characters in with the likes of Mortal Kombat when there are probably better alternatives.

I'm interested though. I'd especially like to see how they are going to redo the Mortal Kombat style gameplay but so far I can say that this fighting while falling off a cliff things seems very Dragonball Z Budokai/old MK to convince me that it could become a better fighting game.

Also what the hell happened? I was under the impression that Armageddon was the end of Mortal Kombat fighting games and here they're making another one?

The game will have no blood and no fatalities.

IMMortal Kombat?

No "true" fatalities, huh? I'd like to see what alternatives they come up with. It better be more gruesome than Batman tying his opponent up with his utility belt rope of justice and saying "Gotham is safe for another day!" or something lame like that.

Regardless, though, I always like these crossover titles. The idea of bringing two universes together is just so awesome, so it's hard not to get excited for it.

Wasn't blood and gore pretty much the only thing that ever attracted people over to Mortal Kombat anyway? I can only see bad things from removing the only appealing quality that the MK series ever had. For me, Street Fighter has always been superior in gameplay, so the only thing keeping MK above water is the needless and exaggerated blood and violence.

There's nothing stopping this from being a great game, it's just...I find that the whole novelty of having DC fighting MK is shattered because the MK characters won't be allowed to do what they do best.

I'm all for trying to be original and innovative but this is REALLY reaching. I can't see how this can possibly work and I'm pretty sure this game will come nowhere near the quality of, say, Street Fighter or Soul Calibur.  Hey, maybe they'll prove me wrong but i'm sure as hell not holding my breath for this one.
